Thi Bui was only 3 years old when her family fled South Vietnam in the 1970s to start a new life in California. But Bui says she inherited some of the fear and trauma of her parents' experiences in the war. Bui's illustrated memoir, "The Best We Could Do," explores her parents' lives: the sacrifices they made and the struggles they went through that took their children years to understand.
